Lydia’s mother, Patty, was kidnapped at age 19 by the left-wing terrorist group, the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) when she was living in Berkley, California in 1974. Before her kidnapping, she was known as the granddaughter of American publishing magnate, William Randolph Hearst. Patty was found 19 months after her kidnapping, but was involved in a number of illegal activities, including bank robbery, and was wanted by the law for her crimes. Her sentence was commuted by former president Jimmy Carter and she was pardoned by former President Bill Clinton. Her husband, Bernard, died much later in 2013.
